    How fast can you read? Is it fast enough?



    This is interesting topic. You can test how fast you are reading per minute. It's fun learning speed reading and it can improve my reading speed so i can read more books and get my job done faster. Care to test your speed?

    It is safe to say that almost anyone can double his speed of reading while maintaining equal or even higher comprehension. In other words, anyone can improve the speed with which he gets what he wants from his reading.

    The average college student reads between 250 and 350 words per minute on fiction and non-technical materials. A "good" reading speed is around 500 to 700 words per minute, but some people can read a thousand words per minute or even faster on these materials. What makes the difference? There are three main factors involved in improving reading speed: (1) the desire to improve, (2) the willingness to try new techniques and (3) the motivation to practice.

    Learning to read rapidly and well presupposes that you have the necessary vocabulary and comprehension skills. When you have advanced on the reading comprehension materials to a level at which you can understand college-level materials, you will be ready to speed reading practice in earnest. - via UCC.Vt


    I found 2 site that will test your reading speed. This is online their free online demo, if you want to get the rest of the test, you can download their software. ReadFaster.com will teach your eyes to read more faster but if you have eye muscle problem, it's wise not to over-do this. EyeQ was made by a Japanesse ( who i can't pronouce it properly ) and big companies from Japan is using his method to improve their staff speed reading.
